[chicken] Burgul Behommos with Chicken برغل بحمص
Burgul (aka bulgur wheat), is a dried cracked wheat that is an ancient staple of the Middle and Near East. It is typically made from whole grain durum wheat that has been coarsely ground, soaked, steamed and dried, a process that enhances its shelf life and nutritional profile. Compared to white rice, bulgur has more fibre and protein, a lower glycemic index, and higher levels of most vitamins and minerals.
Burgul Behommos is a festive dish which many Syrians take pride in cooking for family gatherings and celebrations. Chicken and chickpeas are boiled with spices and set aside. Then the burgul is cooked in the rich chicken broth, before being re-combined with the chickpeas and topped with the deboned chicken.

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian newcomer women to use our kitchen to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide a source of revenue for the cooks.

We also offer “Guest Cook” spots on Wednesdays where you can help & hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal. These can now be booked via AirBnB Experiences.

Proceeds from the sale of meals goes directly to the newcomer cooks. However this does not cover the costs of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes coordination required to keep this project going. You can support the Newcomer Kitchen project directly and our vision of expanding this model to support more women in more neighbourhoods!

Help us take this idea into any restaurant kitchen, in any city in the world!
